Filmmaker Mo Naqvi will vote for the first time during Pakistan’s elections. His priority is backing a candidate who will prevent Pakistan from becoming a terrorist state. But Naqvi has a tough choice — either vote for religious hardliners or for the secular liberal leader who happens to be a former military dictator.
A fly-on-the-wall examination of one of the world’s most polarising leaders, Pervez Musharraf, Naqvi’s new film chronicles one voter’s journey to find out whether or not democracy is compatible with an unstable Muslim country.
Naqvi’s earlier film Among The Believers, a chilling record of the spread of radical Islam in Pakistani schools, was a big hit at the 2016 Doc Edge Festival.
